Could be a few things, wifi strength could be poor, there could be interference from other networks on the same channel, personally i just straight up wouldn't use wifi for gaming, its really not its strong suit, netflix isn't affected by what is essentially packet loss as it buffers content, games on the other hand are extremely reliant on a steady stable connection, there are some things you can try to diagnose it but there are no guarantees they will even fix the issue or that the issue can be "fixed" i would just suggest running a cable and avoiding the issue completely

 

If you're absolutely desperate to use wifi for gaming i would suggest installing something like inSSIDer on a cellphone to check the quality of your wifi and to see what other networks are in the area and how noisey your chosen wifi band is
